MS Dhoni sees a silver lining in the performance of Indian bowlers

MS Dhoni sees a silver lining in the performance of Indian bowlers

It was the same Indian team captained by Virat Kohli that shot South Africa's batting confidence back in 2015 to a point where they relinquished a rare home series to England in what was a rare crisis of confidence.

Speaking about the series loss at a promotional event for the Chennai Super Kings, the former Indian captain said that if we can pick 20 wickets then we are always likely to win the test matches and that is something team India has done in both the test matches.

"With Ashwin, we can not use the RTM as we have already got three Indian players retained".

I think their bowling attack surprised us all, it's definitely more skilful and they have more pace from what we were expecting. He will need to ask his players if they need more than just a "positive influence" as a coach. India played four Tests won one and the game ended in a draw on the other three.

Bowled out for just 130 in the second essay in the first Test in Cape Town against the Indians, South Africa skipper Faf du Plessis was expected to be a tad bit anxious, even though the hosts won the Test by 72 runs. He was helped by Mohammed Shami bowling the first ball to him on his pads. "At the end of the day this team looks like a team of good bowlers and one great batsman", the 58-year-old added. And I am playing well, and I am doing my preparation well, and I am meeting the ball well. No one begrudges the millions modern Indian cricketers earn, but it appears they aren't entirely justifying it. "I'm not going to diagnose their problems". We never wanted something ridiculous, we just wanted a pitch with pace and bounce. Bumrah is a very good bowler, he's already opening the bowling now.

In the first innings as well, he had got run out in a very careless manner when he did not ground his bat while running back to the crease.

"The fast bowlers are excited to bowl at the Wanderers".

His team 2-0 up, he is not thinking about cricket now.

And the pacemen made adjustments to their length - you don't really have to pitch short on these surfaces to get more lift. Cricket is off my mind now and the hard work starts again on Monday. "The bowlers have done the job but the batsmen have let the team down", Kohli said at the post-match presentation ceremony. We know how the conditions behave here.

"India played really well the last time (2013) they were here, Kohli got a hundred". Wanderers is a good wicket, it's normally a moving wicket. Bhuvneshwar Kumar took three wickets in each of his first three overs.

The worry now is soon the tour itinerary may include the newest contraption, Ten10, even though everyone sneers at it and swears by Test cricket.

"Playing against the Indians is extremely challenging".
